False rumors of dolphins in Venice canals

It’s sad to hear that the viral tweets spreading rumors that dolphins were swimming in Venice canals were in fact false, as reported in the National Geographic: “These reports of wildlife triumphs in countries hard-hit by the novel coronavirus got hundreds of thousands of retweets. They went viral on Instagram and Tik Tok. They made news headlines. If there’s a silver lining of the pandemic, people said, this was it—animals were bouncing back, running free in a humanless world. But it wasn’t real.” “These fake feel-good stories, Vogel says, can make people even more distrustful at a time when everyone already feels vulnerable. Finding out good news isn’t real “can be even more demoralizing than not hearing it at all.” Article: https://www.google.se/amp/s/api.nationalgeographic.com/distribution/public/amp/animals/2020/03/coronavirus-pandemic-fake-animal-viral-social-media-posts Photograph credit: ANDREA PATTARO
